Observation Number Issue Problemue  
Observation Number Issue Problem Solution
       
1
Distress Flare The Yacht Skipper requires urgent assistance   Firing the highly visible flare stands the best chance of alerting other vessels and people ashore - some of whom will hopefully contact the Coastguard either by VHF Marine Radio or dialling 999 and asking for the Coastguard
2
Man Overboard The Yacht Skipper requires urgent assistance to recover the person overboard Inspecting the vessel that fired the flare the yacht sails are out of control in the harbour approach Passing information to the Coastguard it is relevant to report the person in the water - the Coastguard then has more information to build a picture to send the right resources to assist.
3
Waving The Yacht skipper as well as having fired the maroon is using all methods available to draw attention to his plight The yacht appears to be single handed following a Man Over Board incident and has lost control in the harbour approach The urgency displayed by the yacht skipper should be reported to the coastguard
